Sakura has been a babbling baby as of late, it's quite funny watching and listening to her babble, I think she is going to be quite the little chatterbox once this babbling forms real words, she will definitely take after Mommy if that's the case, Daddy is man of very few words (UNTIL you get to know him!).
Sakura is really gearing up for crawling, she loves to get up on her knees and moves around using her arms....I'm bad - I pick her up when I see her do the 'rocking' motion, she has also been "crawling" up my arm when I get her out of her crib. Pretty cute!
The pics are from this week in review. The little denim outfit is one that I bought back when I was pregnant and I held onto it all these years (like 16).

Not too sure what's going on, but we don't like it! Last week when we were at the Dr. we asked about what we thought was heat rash...The Dr. didn't think it looked like heat rash with the way we described what the rash looked like, and she felt herself, but thought maybe Sakura had "dry skin" so Dr. Amon said that we should try using Dove soap, and use a cream instead of lotion because lotions have alcohol to help absorb into the skin faster....but when I looked at the creams, it appeared they had alcohol in them instead, so I checked the Johnson's baby oil container, and saw that it didn't have alcohol and decided I'd try that. We also tried apricots last week....so I'm not sure what this hive/rash stuff is all about, but I know that it's not pretty!
Poor little Sakura - she doesn't seem to be bothered by it, but I don't like the way it looks. The nurse called back yesterday and said that we could give her Benedryl, but after hearing from my friend Carrie that it isn't safe for under 4 years old...I won't be doing that! It's Oatmeal baths and Aveeno for this little girl.

Today was Peyton Sakura's 6 month old "well baby" checkup and shots .... ARGH! Sakura really knows where she is and started crying when the nurse was just measuring her. Dr. Amon commented that one of the other Doctors says that he remembers being an infant at the Dr. office - and she said that we might have one with the same type of memories! Poor thing.
"Y-u-u-u-u-u-c-k-y", that seems to still get a big smile...LOL!
- Weight = 17.0 lbs (75th percentile)
- Length = 25 inches (25th percentile)
Luckily after we go back for our second half of this visit, we have a 3 month reprieve. Yay!
Here is a little video of a very sleepy baby jumping in her new jumper - that was her 6 month present :o) Daddy has wanted a jumper for Princess P since about Day 1.....she LOVES jumping, but here she is laughing at me saying "Jump", when she gets very sleepy she giggles and giggles - we think it's pretty cute :)

- Eating solid foods - green beans, squash, carrots, sweet potato, pears, peaches, and apples along with her cereal
- Sitting up with very little assistance, at times for short periods on her own
- Patting your arm when you hold her
- Laughing out loud (mostly at the dogs)
- "Talking" a lot more
- Smiles a lot, but is very selective and reserved about who and when (still!)
- Holds her own bottle
- "Moves" around/pivots from one direction (360 degrees) while on her tummy
- Has started to reach out for Mommy/Daddy when someone else is holding her
- Puts EVERYTHING in her mouth
(Note: Last week when we sent in our update to Taz and Lesley, Taz commented that "Okada San asked if Sakura smiles a lot, because Sakura was very hard to make smile." I told Auntie Taz that some things never change!

It's been SO hot lately that this really isn't surprising, but Peyton Sakura has what appears to be heat rash (prickly heat). Poor little thing - it doesn't seem to bother her at all, but sure looks like it would! Her poor little "neck" is so red at night when she gets her bath.
Tonight Daddy googled and saw that adding a couple of teaspoons of baking soda should help, so we did just that - and it also mentioned air drying, so I let her lay on her towel until she was all dry. Then it was time for jammies and bedtime.
